The rain is here to stay....

Now normally i wouldnt be too happy about it but i have been wanting to take pictures and actually "capture" the rain... & lately it has been REALLY nice outside. So I found out it was going to rain ALL day and as you can tell i was rather ecstatic about it because it gave me 10 times the amount of chances to actually get it!
Above is my FAV fo which i took today. Below is another one i thought was rather neat.

I was very happy... So please let me know what you think!!! I am always excited when i learn new things, especially when i am this passionate about it! Yay for successful rain walks!

Cool shots! Rain is really hard to capture, isn't it?! I haven't really managed yet myself...but since it's Finland, and we're basically famous for rainy summers, there's a pretty good chance I can give it a try this year ;D

Well done!!

It's been raining all day here too, but I was less estatic about it :-)

Your pics are great-you've found some beauty in rain.

Hi Kimberly,
I think rain is really hard to catch. Where I live, we don't get much practice!
but we keep trying, don't we?

Jen said...

Amazing Kimmy!!!! Love the top one, you get the rain in the back and then you get the flowers so crisp and clean! Beautiful!!

Crystal Cook said...

Cool pics. So did you use different shutter speeds? I want to capture rain on a window pane.

Kimberly said...

Thanks! Yep i did use different shutter speeds... took me awhile to get what i wanted but seemed to work. lol

We had a huge rain here today too! It is a bummer when you plan outdoor activities, but rain walks are super fun. What a great way to enjoy the situation.
